Annual Greek Leadership Event

Sponsored by the Alumni of Lambda Chi Alpha Santa Barbara

In fall of 2018, Retired SEAL Team Six Chief Rob Roy lead a Greek leadership weekend experience. Four years after tragedy in Isla Vista, LCA UCSB finds a way to give back.

The alumni House Corp Board for Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity at UCSB will sponsored a Greek leadership training experience facilitated by retired Navy SEAL Team Six chief and author Rob Roy and his staff, in Isla Vista, beginning October 12, 2018. This three-day event is designed to mentor leadership through team exercises, and will conclude with an awards dinner and celebration Sunday evening.

Chief Rob Roy is an award-winning, 26-year veteran of the US Navy. He spent 20 of those years as an active member of the SEAL teams, serving with SEAL Team Six, an anti-terrorism and maritime interdiction team that is one of the government's key devices in the Global War on Terror (GWOT). Roy uses his knowledge and experience to help transform the lives of men and women through training, seminars, and leadership challenges. His company, SOT-G, puts on corporate retreats that offer an experience during which "powerful leadership and effective teamwork are more than just concepts; they are necessities," says Roy.

The event was years in the making, The need to give back to the community was cemented after the tragic shootings in Isla Vista in 2014, when six students were killed and another fourteen were injured. "We were sitting in a Board meeting as property owners asking ourselves how we could help," says Ron Wolfe, President of the Alumni Board. "After spending time with the local Sheriff's Department walking Isla Vista and witnessing the various issues they face, it became clear we could only focus on one idea," says Scott Greenwald, Secretary of the Alumni Board.

"We aren't turning these guys into Navy SEALs. We are here to teach leadership skills through teamwork. We feel these leadership lessons are the crucible in today's environment where the increased focus is on personal accountability. The weekend program is designed to highlight accountability and to get them to understand what it is like to work as a team," says Roy.

The alumni of Lambda Chi Alpha at UCSB is committed to the health and wellbeing of the students at UCSB, and developing leadership in men of character, and we hope to make this an annual event in future years.

Board Members

  • Ron Wolfe - President

    After graduation in 1966 Ron formed a Real Estate Investment and Management company enabling him to stay in Santa Barbara and to ultimately assist with with management of 6519 Cervantes. Ron has served on the House Corporation for many years and is committed to preserving the property for ultimate recolonization by Lambda Chi Alpha.

  • Gary King (Sky) - Vice President

    Sky created the current Board out of sheer tenacity. No one was volunteering, so Sky recruited some folks to serve, so we could perpetuate a tradition he was so proud to have experienced. He met his wife during his days at UCSB and the rest is history.

  • Scott Greenwald - Secretary

    Scott was one of Sky's recruits. Seeing the need for a Board to keep the property in good shape with the hopes of recolonizing simply made sense.

  • Jim McCabe

    Jim served as a Chapter Consultant upon graduating from UCSB, so we have a torch bearer among the Board. Jim's intimate knowledge of the true brotherhood spirit is evident every time Jim speaks. He wants the best for the Brothers... whatever that is.

  • David Mayo

    David graduated in 1981 and decided to stay at UCSB, working in the campus research administration office primarily negotiating the research contracts made to the campus and otherwise helping manage those funds.  From 2000 to 2002, David took on the role of High Pi for Zeta Eta until a job opportunity became available in Pasadena as head of Caltech's research administration office.  David is still at Caltech with no sign of retirement in sight and looks forward each year to reuniting with his brothers in Yosemite.  David has been active on the HCB since 2019.
